Today's Six picks up where last week's left off. The chunk of dialogue surrounding Luke's "in that way" speech is some of my favorite. I couldn't fit it all in last week's Six, so I decided to do a "continuation" this week. The set up is the same as last week. Luke and Layla are in the thick of the battle with the evil forces that destroyed them in their past lives, and it's put a real damper on their budding teenage romance. Luke's a tad bit ticked that they've not been able to have normal relationship. His frustration comes out in a run-on sentence and a heart-melting confession!
My heart went wild in my chest, and I wondered if he could hear it. The look on his face melted everything inside me, turning my brain to a mud puddle.
But he wasn't finished.
"Sometimes I look at you and I forget all about strange dreams and visions and past lives, and all I can think about is how pretty you look and how lucky I am and how proud I am that you want to be with me. Sometimes all I want is to just be a normal eighteen year-old guy who's crazy about his girlfriend."
